City Paper‘s Jason Cherkis wrote this week’s cover story on David Kerstetter, the gay Logan Circle man shot by D.C. police on Nov. 5. The story details Kerstetter’s mental illness, addiction to crystal meth, loss of his partner, Paul Brazitis, suicide attempts, and death by multiple gunshot wounds from D.C. police. Writes Cherkis: “What’s unlikely to come out of the investigation, however, is the answer to this straightforward question: How did a man who seemed to pose no danger to anyone besides himself end up being killed by the police in his own bathroom?”
